Overview

Rio began as a seafaring city and this is a great place to explore some of its history. The exhibit begins with the Portuguese control of Brazil's naval affairs and continues to the present times. Housed in the original downtown navy headquarters, there are also models of galleons, nautical charts, naval paintings and military equipment on display. The highlight, however, has to be the hand-drawn map of the New World by Pedro Álvares Cabral.
